    I keep getting error at 71% also. My DVD has pictures on it but will not play on my DVD burner. Pat

    Upon trying to make a DVD using Win DVD Maker, I had the exact same problem. The program works great at first...files are added easily (the files I added were in MPEG), the preview looked great, and I was happy. The DVD began burning but, as with the other complaint, when the DVD reached the 70% complete status, it stopped and gave me an error message which read "Invalid Pointer." There was no help offered, no solution, and my only recourse was to stop the project in its tracks. I am running the following system:

    Intel Quad Core @ 2.6 GhZ
    8 gb RAM
    1 TB HD
    GeForce 9800 GT @ 1 gb
    Windows Vista Home Premium

    Any help?

    What are you talking about? You need to explain your problem a bit more than the short sentence you left for us to guess at what you need.

If all things (software,dvd,writer,windows,configurations.etc.,) are correct, your RAM may be the cause for this error..!

My italia digital barista says "close door" but the door is closed all the way. what is the issue? it won't let me do anything else.

There is a pointer on the inside of the door towards the steam wand hose. It pushes on a micro switch inside the body. That pointer may be broken or the micro switch needs to be moved forward towards the pointer.

windows will pop up a little window that ask's if you would like to burn anything to the dvd.

How to fit an unfitted file on windows dvd maker

The Windows DVD Maker can store approximately 150 minutes of video on a single-layer DVD and approximately 300 minutes on a dual-layer DVD. An entire season will be well over either of those limits. You can try to shorten each episode by removing commercials with Windows Movie Maker first. This should make each episode somewhere between 45 and 50 minutes in length. Then you can try to fit as many as possible onto each DVD (you will still require multiple DVDs for this) while keeping it under the 150 or 300 minute limit.

I contacted Gateway and found out that the AR-230 will not work with anything more than 4x DVD's. Usually it will format DVD-RW's but avoid memorex brand. Usually any other cheep brand will work.
